    I have not read the commentaries on The Book of Wisdom or the Book of Sirach as they were outside my focus of interest at the time I was using this volume. Van Leeuwen's contribution on Proverbs is very helpful. I have referred to it on numerous occasions. Unfortunately, I was not as impressed with either Towner's or Weem's contribution (Ecclesiastes & Song of Songs respectively).
